    November 2012, 10 years ago, I began to drastically reduce my smoking. I didn’t buy a multiple days’ sigarette supply any more, but at each visit shopping for food in the supermarket, I bought only 1 single packet, with 3 to 4 days intervals. I did persevere that scheme until

    24 November 2017, 5 years ago, when I completely 100% cold turkey stopped smoking, even passively too.

    This anniversary makes me feel especially proud.

    Congratulations are welcome. Things like:

    “Congratulations and celebrations
    When I tell everyone
    That I’m in love with ME
    …” (Cliff Richard paraphrased)

      Congratulations are indeed in order. I remember passively smoking back in my early twenties, when warning notices were first being printed on packaging. I took heed and was determined to not become hooked, limiting myself to one cigarette per day. It worked. I stopped after about six months, switching to the occasional cigar or pipe until giving smoking up altogether after a couple of years. That was many decades ago and I say it to make clear that I have never been through the “quitting” process. I watched my dad do it in a similar manner to Sporgersi and wish I had recognized at the time the significance of that accomplishment. I have a sister-in-law who has attempted to quit multiple times and has now given up, even though lung cancer took her dad. As a non-smoker forced to associate with a smoker I find the habit to be nasty and disruptive. So again, congratulations E Pericoloso Sporgersi on 10 years of being smoke free.

      Congratulations! It’s not easy to break a habit such as tobacco, but you did it! Be sure to do some harmless activity today that you really enjoy, something that you have really wanted to do but haven’t been able to.

      I toast you with my favorite drink, A&W Root Beer!
